Here’s a little mid-week update on what I’m up to…

The Flickr photo pool for the Big Butt Baby Pants is up!  So if you’ve already made a pair, add your pictures and comments and strut your sewing stuff so we can all enjoy.  Hopefully this pool won’t get tagged as inappropriate due to the ridiculous name. If you can believe this I actually had to change the name of the pattern in my shop from “Big Butt Baby Pants” to “Made By Rae Baby Pants” because my instant download emails were getting flagged by the major email hosts as spam.  And it never occurred to me before that it would be anything other than funny/cute, but I guess “Big Butt” qualifies as potentially inappropriate email material.  Hah.

If you haven’t yet read my blog post about the Big Butt Baby Pant Sewing Pattern, you can click here to do so.

And I have been sewing like a maniac lately, but nothing’s quite finished yet to show you…just thought I’d give you a sneak peek:

Any guesses?

Even I have no idea what this last one will end up as.  Just had so much fun arranging the City Weekend charm squares (I’m not really a quilter so I think that’s what these are, 2.5″ square right?) we all got in our goodie bags at Blueberry Hill Sewing Weekend, so I just went with it and now I have a long strip about 25″ and about 8″ wide.  Who knows.

I’ll see you guys on Friday with a little more BOY SEWING!!!

    If "Big Butt Baby Pants" is inappropriate, then pretty much every phrase out of my 7 and 10-yo boys' mouths is inappropriate in more place than at the dinner table. :)

  13. dana says:
